Connected Home Global Summit

Connected Home Global Summit is another interesting event which I am tracking.

Verizon Wireless, Comcast, Vodafone, BBC, Telecom Italia Cable and Wireless and Virgin Mobile are some of the 20 operators, broadcasters and content providers confirmed to speak at the 2nd annual Connected Home Global Summit, 24 – 26 May, London, UK

Focused on the technology choices and business models that will monetize the Connected Home, the event is co-located with the inaugural Connected Home Global Industry Awards which celebrates excellence and innovation in the bourgeoning marketplace.
